Our story started 10 years ago when my son turned one. We baptized my son that day and I decorated the banquet hall with my own floral arrangements.

Sometimes when I think my journey of becoming a hypnotherapist, I feel like I’ve been following a trail of breadcrumbs left by my soul, just like children in fairytales do to find their way back home. I had my first experience of hypnosis at 14 years old, when my best friend and I stole a book about it from my dad’s bookshelf.

I was a velodrome sprinter at 14, picking an obscure sport that most people have to google.
